Wooden Floor Care Tips

  • Regular sweeping, mopping, and soft head vacuuming of your floor will prolong the life of your timber floor.
  • Ensure that you have mats at door entrances to trap dirt before it is brought onto your clean wooden flooring.
  • Use felt padding under furniture to prevent wearing out of your timber floor finish.
  • High-heeled shoes can mark your timber floors so request family remembers and visitors take them out when walking on them.

Strong light, particularly direct sunlight, can cause a chemical reaction in wood, causing it to change colour (ageing or weathering). Shading your windows or using curtains will offer some protection for your timber floor.

Move rugs occasionally to avoid mat marking and use curtains or blinds to protect the floor from direct sunlight.

Regular timber floor care and maintenance are essential to keep your floors looking their best. By following these tips for cleaning polished timber floors, you can ensure the longevity and beauty of your polished timber floors.

Use a microfibre cloth moistened with a PH neutral solution. Let it soak on the polished timber floors, and as the wax and dirt begin to dissolve, wipe it away with crumpled papertowel.
